Safari

Nestled within Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, Makanyi Lodge offers a luxurious base from which to discover this fascinating area's wildlife. Two thrilling game-drives depart each day - morning and afternoon - allowing you, alongside an expert local guide, to meet and photograph some incredible animals in the heart of their natural habitat. Keep your eyes peeled for the 'Big Five' - the African Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Rhinoceros and Buffalo - all of which roam the bush, alongside many more captivating species. Bush walks allow you to follow tracks, discover hundred of intriguing plants and observe animals from a safe distance.

Local artist Warren Cary, specialist in drawing and painting the fascinating African wildlife, will join you into the bush, pointing out important features that influence his work, including light and the role it plays on different subjects. Back at the lodge, Warren will lead laid-back workshops - consisting of pencil techniques, textures in nature, tonal changes, perspective and composition - allowing you to create a masterpiece souvenir of your time at Makanyi.
